We studied parameters of a combined filling mass during both solid stowing and rockfill of a chamber and ascending exploitation mining of deposits. We deter-mined main mining and geological and mine engineering factors influencing parameters of artificial pillars. The studies resulted in a nomograph used to determine a width of a solid part of the combined filling mass. A grain composition of the mix of rocks used in a combined filling mass is justified.


Ascending exploitation mining, combined filling mass, forming technology, chamber mining, width of an artificial pillar, mix of rocks.
